"Israel Field Hospital Opens In Northern Japan"
Doing the work of the United Nations, little Israel, the Jewish nation the United Nations and the nations around the world love to hate and are constantly condemning-- the only country living at peace with each other and not killing each other in the Middle East, while its surrounding Middle East arab neighbors are fighting with each other and killing each other, from Egypt, to Syria, to Iran to Jordan to Yemen to Bahrain to Saudi Arabia to Libya to UAE, has opened a field hospital in northern Japan.
The Israeli army on Tuesday officially opened the doors of its field hospital in the devastated northern regions of Japan.
The clinic is situated just outside Minamisanriku, a village that was all but destroyed by the tsunami that followed the massive March 11 earthquake off Japan’s northeastern coast.
The facility includes surgical, pediatrics and maternity wards, an intensive care unit, a pharmacy and a laboratory. The buildings for the clinic were built by the Japanese government, and the 58-man IDF Medical Corps and Home Front Command team is being housed at a nearby hotel.
The Israelis brought along their own medical equipment and supplies, as well as their own food and water so as to not further tax the already-limited local resources. Also on hand are several officials from Israel Atomic Energy Commission to make sure radiation levels in the area do not get too high.
On Monday, several of the Israeli officers spoke to Japanese reporters asking them to publicize the opening of the clinic so that victims in the area know where to find assistance and treatment.
“The Japanese people in the affected area went above and beyond to help us,” said Sheetrit. “The assistance of the Japenese from the moment the aid delegation landed in Japan has been exemplary.”
Japan’s Ambassador to Israel, Haruhisa Takeuchi, in turn delivered a heart-felt thank you to the medical delegation:
“I thank you, the crew of medical personnel, from the bottom of my heart, for volunteering to help in the aftermath of this tragedy and for carrying out this difficult mission.”
The ambassador also thanked the entire nation of Israel for standing so strongly by his nation:
“In this difficult hour, we will remember the warm and merciful embrace, the goodwill and the solidarity of the people of Israel. …Your support is a source of hope and encouragment.”
Blessed [are] the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Matthew 5:7
